Real Kneeling Theology

A Los Angeles Times story about pilgrims to the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe. See the video as well.

I have always been skeptical of all talk of an “interior life” or faith as an abstract idea. This for me is far more familiar and far more real.

That’s what real religion looks like.

I really appreciate your take on things, Arturo. It reminds me that one thing I’ve been meaning to do for a while now is expand my repertoire of Catholic bloggers & web-favourites outside of the Anglo-American echo-chamber.

Sorry, Arturo: like all things Catholic, it’s not either/or: external devotion vs. “interior life”. It’s both/and. So the Saints teach us, by word and example.
